Inthis article, the relationship between the employee involvement andtheir effect on the organization is being analyzed. The employeeinvolvement refers to a situation in which the employee getsintegrated into the operation of the organization. The efforts andcapabilities get channeled to the organization in which they operate.They affect the performance of the organization in one way or theother. Some of the employee involvement includes things to do withthe power, information, knowledge and skills and rewards they get.Through their involvement, they increase the output of theorganization.
Powerposes relation to the organization productivity through the autonomysupport, encouraging and participating in decision making rather thantaking control (Deci & Ryan, 1985). This is due to the impact ithas on the employee’s attitude. In the situation where thedecision-making aspect of the organization also involves theemployee, there is always a high productivity rate as compared toothers. The decisions made in this case are compatible with eachemployee, and they agree towards it. These decisions then becomeintegrated into the operation of the organization which leads to highproductivity.
Informationaspects entail the situation where the communication between theemployees is efficient. In this case, the information disseminationis fast such that the employees are in place to know what is expectedof them to do at a given period. This makes the employees increasingthe pace in production process thus causing a higher productivity.When the employee receives information faster they plan forward andthus are in position to do a lot of production activities within ashort period of time. This therefore causes high productivity inorganization with faster information transfer to employees.
Knowledgeand skill facilitate employee involvement in a great way to theorganization.(Prais,1995). The skilled employees perform their duties very fast sincethey are experienced at this field and their produce is ofgreatquality. They generate a lot of produce per time as compared tounskilled since they know what appropriate path needs to be taken forhigher productivity. Therefore skilled employees cause a rise in theorganization production.

Mainly rewards are given maybe afterattaining a certain goal targeted by the organization. It may alsoarise as a result of good work done by the employee. The presence ofthe rewards in the employee involvement in organizations makes themdesire to attain it. In doing so, they channel their effort toproduction and thus causing an increase in the organizationalproductivity at large.

Organizationcommitment is based on the fact that the employees are capable ofworking hard for the sake of the organization apart from acceptingthe organization goals. In this situation the productivity increasesa lot as the employees are willingly to work towards achieving theorganization goals.
Inthe result aspect, proper information causes the organization toproduce a lot as the employees are aware of what is expected of them.This is caused by the fact that fast information transfer leads toproper coordination in the productivity process thus yielding highproduce. On the other hand, skills among the employees make themhandle the productivity process faster and in the easier waypossible. This causes increased productivity. Rewards and power alsoincreases the productivity. Not to forget the fact that properorganization commitment causes a rise in productivity as theemployees are ready to work for attaining the organization goals.
